Weekly, my students and I write to our parents to share highlights of our week. Because this is just a 2-day school week due to the Thanksgiving holiday, I had them add a move I used to have my kindergarten students do - make a Turkey using the outline of our hand!!
On one side of the letter to the parents is the student turkey with their list of four things written across their finger/feathers and on the reverse side is my turkey. (see images above!)
I should also add that I am MOST thankful for the TwoWritingTeachers blog! It provides me with a space to make my writing public on their amazing blog that also inspires me as a writing teacher daily. And I am thankful for all the blog writers (most I only know virtually). You also inspire and keep me going!
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
